ioDrive Duo Storage Memory Modules Provide Scalable Enterprise Acceleration to Meet Requirements for Rapid Data Analysis with Dell In-Memory Appliances

SALT LAKE CITY, May 18, 2011 - Fusion-io, pioneer of a next generation storage memory platform for
shared data decentralization, announced today that its ioMemory technology is
being offered by Dell for integration into its In-Memory solutions to meet
performance requirements for scalable, near-real time analytics. Enterprises
can customize a powerful Dell In-Memory solution with either 360 GB or 640 GB
Dell branded ioDrive Duo modules integrated into a Dell PowerEdge R910 Rack
Server for performance intensive data analysis in demanding business

Providing the power to analyze business operations based on large volumes
of detailed information, the Fusion Powered Dell In-Memory solution - used
together, for example, with SAP applications - enables increases in
bandwidth, reduces latency and simplifies IT infrastructures while
maintaining enterprise level reliability and allowing organizations to react
quickly to changing business conditions.

"Storing an organization's most active data directly in the appliance
with Fusion-io technology allows for more data to be processed in near
real-time," said Neil Carson, Fusion-io Chief Technology Officer. "Fusion-io
is proud to extend our OEM relationship with Dell by providing the
performance required for Dell In-Memory solutions to enable improvements in
planning, forecasting, pricing optimization and other critical business

"In order to deliver near real-time information, customers need robust
hardware platforms that can manage large volumes of data in-memory," said
Sally Stevens, Dell Vice President of Enterprise Platform Marketing,
"Fusion-io storage memory products are a key component to Dell's PowerEdge
Server strategy to deliver in-memory technology while providing customers
access to information faster so they can make more informed business

Integrating ioMemory technology as a new data storage memory tier allows
Dell customers' most active data to be processed directly in the main memory
of the server. Storing data in the Dell In-Memory solution rather than in
slower centralized storage greatly reduces latency while maximizing the
capabilities of server to provide nearly immediate results from analyses and
transactions. ioMemory architectures also consume less energy than legacy
storage infrastructures to offer accelerated performance with lower total
cost of ownership.

The new Dell In-Memory solutions featuring Fusion's ioMemory technology
are now available through Dell. To learn more go to:

About Fusion-io

Fusion-io has pioneered a next generation storage memory platform for
shared data decentralization that significantly improves the processing
capabilities within a datacenter by relocating process-critical, or "active",
data from centralized storage to the server where it is being processed, a
methodology referred to as data decentralization. Fusion's integrated
hardware and software solutions leverage non-volatile memory to significantly
increase datacenter efficiency and offers enterprise grade performance,
reliability, availability and manageability. Fusion's data decentralization
platform can transform legacy architectures into next generation datacenters
and allows enterprises to consolidate or significantly reduce complex and
expensive high performance storage, high performance networking and
memory-rich servers. Fusion's platform enables enterprises to increase the
utilization, performance and efficiency of their datacenter resources and
extract greater value from their information assets.
